North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly agreed to hold a summit meeting with South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in next month and impose a moratorium on nuclear and missile tests if Pyongyang holds talks with the US, a senior South Korean official said Tuesday.

Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s presidential national security director, said the third-ever summit between the two Koreas would take place in late April at the Joint Security Area in the Panmunjom border village at the Demilitarized Zone.

The Seoul official also said that Kim and Moon have agreed to set up a “hotline” to reduce military tensions, and planned to speak together before their April summit.

Chung led a 10-member South Korean delegation that met with Kim during a two-day visit to Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital. They returned on Tuesday.
